Not even close. First I got my digital caliper out and not one of the links from the servos was the same. In fact the one on the left was way off (heli kept going left) hmm! So I locked the gyro down and the left servo horn is a full notch off. I unscrewed it put it down one and now they all line up. Made all links the same. Took off and the heli is hands off in 3 axis.
Yeah man. I am a total newb and I expected everything ready to go. After looking here, searching, and asking a lot of questions. While my cp is broken waiting for parts, I redid the whole setup cuz everything was off.
I do think it was a good experience all in all, it was fun pulling things apart, and now I know alot more. I also think they should offer a fully setup heli too, even if its for a small price.
Anyway, while I am down and educating myself, I decided to buy a bunch of spare parts, a second genius, a few tools, and a dual brushless kit.
I am going to be doing flips soon, newb or not! Bring it on!
